I'm going to do a week long extension on stories until *next* Monday at 9AM EST because I left several questions unanswered for so long.

There are currently four stories in the collection!

Days of Awesome 2013 is open!


When? September 1-September 30, 2013 (26 Elul, 5773- 26th of Tishrei, 5774)

What kind of challenge? Just post your stories. They will not be anonymous, no prompts necessary.

Length? Whatever you want.

Does the author need to be Jewish? No! All authors are welcome.

What does "being Jewish" mean? That is your call, as the author. I'm not touching that with a ten foot yad.

What about meta / RPF / vids / other fanworks? Please do! If you're not comfortable posting to the AO3, post on the LJ/DW comms. (If you only have an account on one of those systems, let me know and I can post a pointer from the other.)

You can post to the collection at any time this month.

so a side effect of this being the year of the first Thanksgivikah and the only one until the year 79,043 C.E is that the holidays are REALLY, REALLY soon. Is anybody interested in taking over or helping run daysofawesome this year? Format is up for grabs.

(Also I am trying to encourage somebody to run a First Thanksgivikah Fest (subtitle: Fry All the Things. Secondary subtitle: can we love Thanksgivikah and still be intersectional allies?). That someone could be YOU.)

reveal!

In a turn of events that will surprise absolutely nobody, I got distracted (oh, semester, why must you begin at the same time as the holidays, whyyyy?), and didn't remind people to post stories. But we got two stories anyway, huzzah! Or heidad, I suppose.

Go check out the collection's two stories.

Into the Depths of the Sea (1742 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Social Network (2010)
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply

Chapters: 1/1

Summary:

"This is a very serious day," Mr. Yooper said. "We find everyone we have wronged during the year and ask them to forgive us, and try to figure out how we are going to do better next year. Speaking of which --" He looked suddenly nervous, reaching up to fiddle awkwardly with his glasses.

There are 32 prompts in the Days of Awesome Collection. Between now and 2012-10-10 12:00AM GMT-5 (time where you are), y'all should fill these prompts, yo!

שנה טובה ומתוקה -- have a good and sweet year, everyone. Or as my people say, a gut yor.

I've just extended the deadline to end of day Friday (midnight GMT -5 / in your local time) to give people more time to make prompts.

As far as I can tell, you have to make a prompt to claim a prompt on the AO3, so if you want to write but you don't have any ideas for prompts, just make the world's most vague prompts. E.g. no fandom, no characters, no details. Or, heck, the world's silliest. "Fandom Sesame Street, character cookie monster, details honey cake-flavored cookie." You are also welcome to leave prompts if you have no intention of writing. Leave prompts.

You are welcome to leave prompts with every intent of filling them yourself -- it looks like you can claim them immediately once you have submitted your prompts, so go ahead, make a prompt, and then claim it right away!

You are welcome to leave incredibly vague prompts. You are welcome to fill them with any kind of fanwork: fic, meta, video, audio; gen, slash, femmeslash, any rating; fictional or real people. Characters who aren't Jewish in canon are welcome as long as you write them as Jewish (respectfully, of course, if they have some other canonical background).

Pretty much my only restrictions are the technological restrictions of the AO3 prompt challenge, and the idea that there be Jewish characters. Other than that, go wild.

See the existing prompts.

And please signal boost!

  • I think you have to answer a prompt in this challenge format, but you are welcome to leave prompts and fill them yourself.
  • Fic, meta, video, audio are all welcome.
  • RPF is welcome.
  • Characters who aren't Jewish in canon are welcome as long as you write them as Jewish.


Only 19 prompts so far; leave more!

Okay, guys, I'm trying something a little different this year because I am so discombobulated in the fall that I have not even managed to get in touch with the people who have offered to help. Why do the holidays fall at the start of the semester again?

Since participation has been dropping off, I'm going to try running the challenge as a prompt meme, using the AO3's built-in prompt meme tool, just to mix it up.

Leave prompts from now until Friday September 14 (12AM GMT-5). You have a month to write: assignments are due during Sukkot, on Wednesday October 10 (12AM GMT-5). Works will be revealed as soon as the challenge closes, and authors revealed one week later.

So leave prompts now! And please signal boost. Prompt-a-thons are FUN.

does anyone feel like helping me run the challenge this year? Because this is absolutely my busiest time of year and I have a tendency to fall down and not do a great job.

Thanks to the lovely [livejournal.com profile] aresenicjade for reminding to do the story reveal! (seriously, you guys, I am too chaotic for this; next year may be there could be a co-mod. *puppy eyes*)

You have until midnight EST Wednesday night to post a story for Days of Awesome 2011! After than I will reveal the stories but not the authors.

There's only three stories there now, so why don't you try to write a drabble or three? :D

Okay, so. I flaked on Days of Awesome this year, because I'm overwhelmed. But all week I've been getting kudos for previous years' Days of Awesome stories, and it's making me feel guilty. (Appropriately!)

So here, have the instaquick delayed Days of Awesome. Hey, it's still the days of awe, right? Right?

Post as many or as few stories as you want, of any length, at the AO3 Days of Awesome 2011 collection between now and October 20th; stories will be hidden. On October 20th, I'll reveal the stories. On October 30th, I'll reveal the authors.

And סלח לי, forgive me.

I didn't do a very good round up at the end of the challenge this fall, did I? Really I need to be not running a challenge every year falls at the beginning of the only semester in which I teach. *facepalm*

In any case, you know what's happening now? Purim Gifts! Rules and updates are at [community profile] purimgifts.

I'm still not sure if I'm going to participate, because last year I defaulted. :-( So you should all participate so that there are tons of awesome stories and I benefit anyway!
jadelennox: Judeo-Christian pancake party. Judaism is practice based; Christianity is faith-based. (From cat and girl) (religion: judeo christianity)

Happy New Year Everybodeeeeee! (To properly get the effect of that, imagine me yodeling it in my Gonzo voice while waving my arms as if they were, well, Gonzo's, throwing confetti in the air.)

Guys! We're up to ten stories, and we still have another week to go. We are clearly smack in the middle of the DAYS OF AWESOME, are we not?

Several of these are for the simultaneous Days of Awesome and Eid Ka Chand challenges (the latter of which helped raise money for disaster recovery in Pakistan).

This week alone:

No new stories were posted in days of awesome this week. I hope you're just hard at work on a current story (as I am)!

You don't need to write seven stories, or even two, to contribute to the challenge. Even a single drabble is welcome!

Week 2 roundup, not counting mystery works which are crossposted to Eid 2010..


Also, signal boosting the Sponsored Eid-al-thon for Pakistan, which is asking people to make pledges supporting relief organizations helping flood relief efforts in Pakistan by pledging a certain amount of money for fanworks generated for the [community profile] eid_ka_chand challenge. If you can, participate, or find some other way to help relief efforts. It's the time of year for Teshuva, Tefilla, and Tzedakah, and this is a damn good cause for your tzedakah.

Days of Awesome started this week, and there's already two posted stories!



Administrivia: We are strongly encouraging cross-posts as appropriate with the Eid 2010 Ficathon. Days of Awesome is an open collection, where all stories are visible as soon as they're posted. Eid stories, on the other hand, will be revealed on Eid al-Fitr, which is a 11 September. That means that if the story is crossposted to both collections, it will be hidden until the reveal date for the Eid challenge. (Nice coding, by the way, AO3 developers!)
